• From Tails 5.14, we started asking Tails users to consider donating to Tails when they open Electrum. Since then, Electrum users on Tails have donated USD 5k towards Tails' mission. We are so grateful for your generous support!

  • The Tails community had very meaningful and lovely contributions to the project. McFly helped solve an issue some users had while identifying the 'Alt' key on Apple keyboards, and also designed some slick business cards. And jawlensky submitted a huge branch with tons of changes all over the website. It will take us a few weeks to process it all!

  • We were in Kerala at DebConf 2023. Thank you to DebConf for sponsoring our participation.
